Melford Road 44-46 Prior and Stour Villas

Residential

William Smith, gentleman, bought this plot in 1888 for £77 10 shillings, had the pair of villas built (probably by Clement Dennington) and then rented them out. In 1901 Thomas Haywood, the borough engineer, lived at Prior Villa (right) and Harriet Wheeler, widow, lived on her own means at Stour Villa (left). The pair serenely dominate the road below but pity the poor postman!
